Ozone formation in a street canyon

Abstract: In this study, we want to study ozone formation in a street canyon under realistic climatic conditions.

Description: Inside street canyons, localized high concentrations of NOx and VOCs are found, leading to a high potential for ozone formation. By considering the major physical and chemical processes, the characteristics of ozone formation due to vehicular exhaust (the major source of ozon precursors) inside street canyons are investigated. While previous studies focus on calm wind conditions, the aim here is to study realistic climatic conditions. The study will be performed by means of the CFD package TransAT.

Tasks: Literature survey; getting familiar with TransAT; selection and evaluation of cases; assessment of the air quality

Type: Bachelor, Semester or Master thesis

Internal supervisor: Peter Moonen

External supervisor: Djamel Lakehal
